Econ 201 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A
"Would take again" "There for you" "Amazing lectures"

Usher is the best teacher I have had yet. She makes economics seem easy. Her tests are not bad if you pay attention during lectures and she gives much needed curves on them. There is a lot of homework, but it really does help. I would take her for every class if I could!

ECON 201-04 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: B+
"Lectures are long" "Would take again" "Hilarious"

She's an excellent professor who makes ECON interesting. The class is not an easy A because you do need to pay attention and attend class lectures. I highly recommend taking a math class prior to this course. She grades fairly and will be more than happy to give you outside help. The book is really only useful for Aplia assignments, if at all.

ECON 102 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A-
"Gives good feedback" "Lectures are long" "Respected by students"

Class and lectures are boring and confusing. But you will do fine on the test if you go to class and go to the REACH test reviews before the test!

"Lectures are long" "Respected by students" "There for you"

She is super nice and friendly and always willing to help. Lectures are long, boring, and sometimes confusing. But if you go to class and study you will do fine on the tests. I didn't look at the book once so don't bother getting it.

Great prof. teaching simple material. If you put forth solid effort you will get an A and learn a lot. Haven't opened the text and have gotten above a 100 on every exam. Just take good notes in lecture

Ms. Usher makes learning fun. She provides just the right amount of work to make economics easy. I won’t claim to say it’s an easy A for everyone, but it was for me. I didn’t have to memorize flash cards or study from the book and notes to get my A+. I went to almost every leacture and I used the aplia practice work to help me study for tests.

ECON 201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A+

She really likes teaching and wants her students to do well. I thought she was easy, but that's coming from a 4.0 student. She made the material interesting and clear. Just read the book & study your notes and the handouts before tests. She tells stories and those are extra credit. And she curves. I definitely recommend her.

Great professor. Willing to help you in anyway that she can. Her class is hard, but if you pay attention and do the homework you should be able to do well. Hint: make flash cards! It's a lot of information to remember. She does curve tests if average is low enough. Only negative is Aplia is $$$!

I absolutely loved her! The class is genuinely hard, but if you study and do the homework and read the chapters you can easily get an A. She genuinely wants every studnt to do well. Stop by her office hours and meet her and it will help at the end of the semester. My favorite teacher thus far.

She's a good teacher. Very friendly and does her best to make the class interesting and easy as possible. Econ requires a lot of work to grasp the concepts so there's no avoiding that but as far as teacher quality goes, she's top notch. She curved the 1st test by 9 points and the Aplia work u have to do helps pad your grade.

WONDERFUL professor! She is incredibly friendly and helpful. She genuinely wants everyone to do well and is more than willing to put curves on test grades to help students. Even if you hate economics, she makes it interesting and easy to understand.

One word, AWESOME! She is totally awesome. She makes sure that EVERYONE understands the concept. She would give everyday example you which can easily relate. Always ready to stop and go back, if you miss anything. Make sure that you attend her lectures, it will get you a lot of extra credit. I would HIGHLY recommend her!

AWESOME. She is so excited to be teaching and it shows. Her class requires work (as do all econ classes) but she will make it seem interesting and fun. She is considerate and interesting. Homework and class examples are great study tools for tests. She will tell random facts about herself in class and make them bonus Q's on tests, so GO!
